In honor of Month of the Military Child, Hunt Military Communities is pleased to launch its inaugural ‘Hunt Little Heroes’ program. Hunt Little Heroes celebrates the special moments that make our military families and their children heroes right here in our communities.
As part of the program, we want children of military families to share their “Hero Story” of what they think it takes to be a hero and how they’ve been a positive influence in their community.
The Hunt Little Heroes program is open to children of all military families. Applicants must be between the ages of 4-15 during the Month of the Military Child (April).
Submit your Little Hero story for the chance to be Hunt’s Little Hero for the day in your local community. In honor of Month of the Military Child, Hunt Military Communities will be sending every participant who submits a story their very own Hunt Little Heroes cape and mask.
Should you be selected as your local community’s Hunt Little Hero, you will act as “Hero for the day” at a special celebratory event at your local military community. On behalf of Hunt Military Communities, you’ll receive a gift memorializing your contribution to your local community. In honor of Month of the Military Child’s color purple, Hunt Military Communities will be presenting each selected Hunt Little Hero a Purple Coin. As “Coining” is a military tradition that is bestowed to a civilian as a special honor, the Hunt Little Heroes will receive a purple coin that symbolizes great respect for the child’s service to the military community. We will also be offering three cash prizes ($1000, $500, $300) to which half of the prize will go the child and the other half will go to the charity of their choice. Additionally, a photo of the hero with submission will be on display in the leasing office.
